Harry Potter said:On my way to work this morning, I noticed a 153 running into Scunthorpe from Cleethorpes instead of a 158. Are things that bad for TPE at the minute they have to borrow a 153 of Northern Rail?

Harry Potter said:Latest observation - A 156 on the 0727 Cleethorpes - Manchester today. Definately not a stock move. I saw it in the same place I mentioned above.
